Setting Up Computers
- When connecting your computer(s), be sure the power and monitor cables (Blue End) is securely seated.
- If there are multiple computers connected to a switch, be sure each computer has only one Ethernet cable (Blue or Black) going to a single port on that switch. Discard all additional cables that are not connected.
- From the switch, there should be a single cable connecting to a wall Ethernet plug for network connectivity.
- Test the computer by logging in with a generic student account and open an internet browser such as internet explorer, Firefox, or google chrome.
